It’s A Full Forward Line Of Patrick Kanes As Blackhawks Star Welcomes First Child

Patrick Kane skates in warm-ups prior to the game against the Vegas Golden Knights during the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs on Aug. 16, 2020 in Edmonton, Canada. 


Bad news for the rest of the National Hockey League: There’s another Patrick Kane. The good news is they’ve got roughly 20 years to figure out how to defend him.

Patrick Kane III was born Nov. 12 to his namesake father, the Chicago Blackhawks’ star winger and 2010 Olympic medalist, and mother Amanda Grahovec. He is the couple’s first child. Patrick Kane Jr. tweeted the news on Nov. 19, his 32nd birthday. The post included a photo of the happy new family and the caption, “PTKIII” — middle name Timothy — which would be a great nickname should the youngest Kane turn into an All-Star like his dad.


Kane has played his entire career with the Blackhawks, making nine All-Star Games and winning three Stanley Cups. He led the league in scoring in 2015-16 and won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. Kane’s 1,022 career NHL points rank ninth all-time among Americans, trailing No. 1 Brett Hull who has 1,391. 

Kane has consistently participated with USA Hockey since the 2006 Under-18 world championships and made his Olympic debut in 2010. In Vancouver, Kane scored three goals in six games as Team USA won the silver medal. Kane returned to the Olympic Team in 2014. NHL players did not participate in the 2018 Winter Games, but Kane did play on the world championship team. Serving as captain, Kane led all scorers in the tournament with 20 points and was named MVP as Team USA won the bronze medal.
